If you thought the world of self-driving technology could only be seen in California and Arizona, you might be pleasantly surprised to know that automated vehicles have been moving medical supplies
to and from the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. And in the age of pandemic quarantine, the ability to transport COVID-19 tests from a drive-thru center to a lab is proving effective.
Still, that might beg some logical questions, especially when we know that automation has not yet proven that it can exist without human involvement. For example, do these Mayo Clinic shuttles move on their own, without an actual driver in the vehicle? Yes they do. Are they being monitored by anyone? Yes they are. The Mayo Clinic employs a self-driving tech operator, Beep, to coordinate with the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, supervising these shuttles to ensure their path is free of obstruction.
If you’re eagerly awaiting this kind of a future, then this is both good news and exciting news.
